The I-HATE-CRUNCHES Ab Workout

The simplest workouts can sometimes be the most effective workouts. This entire ab workout requires only one pair of dumbbells. No more refusing to work your abs because you hate doing crunches – this workout requires NONE!

1. PLANK

Start at the top of a pushup position and lower yourself down onto your forearm with your body forming a straight line. Tighten your abs (as if you’re bracing for someone to punch you in the stomach, ouch)! and try to hold it for 60 seconds. If you can’t make a full minutes, start with 10 second intervals, resting for 5-seconds between, until you reach a minute. Form is important here, so don’t drop your hips or raise your butt.
